Pet Grooming Enhances Their Well-Being
Pet grooming is about more than chic haircuts, painted nails, and cute bows. It’s an important service that promotes a sense of well-being and benefits your pet’s health. At Colonial Gateway Veterinary Center, we have professional groomers who are dedicated to giving each of their clients the best experience. Whether your pet requires grooming due to a constantly growing coat or not, routine visits to our groomers can benefit your pet’s health and their quality of life.

Our Grooming Services & Their Benefits
We offer grooming for dogs and cats alike. Grooming helps to clean the coat by removing dead skin, hair, dirt, oils, and allergens. It also helps to prevent matting, which is a painful condition for your pet that results in pulled skin and decreased blood circulation. With our grooming services, your pet will enjoy a healthy coat and skin:
- Bath, brush, and blow dry
- Breed-specific and custom cuts
- Bows and bandanas
- Ear cleanings
- Anal gland expressions
- Nail trims
- Specialty shampoos
A Less-Stress Grooming Experience
All our groomers are experts at what they do and have a knack for making pets comfortable during their grooming visit. We take time to get to know your pet’s needs and use positive reinforcement to encourage cooperation and help them enjoy their experience. Still, we understand that some pets can be overly anxious regardless of our efforts. In those cases, we’ll recommend sedation grooming, which involves one of our veterinarians administering a sedative for the safety and comfort of your pet.
For the safety of all our grooming guests, we have some requirements:
- Current on vaccinations
- Rabies, DHPP, Bordetella, and canine flu for dogs
- Rabies, FVRCP for cats
- Parasite-free and current on parasite preventatives
- A negative fecal exam is required within 12 months of their appointment
